Charlie makes me laugh
Chaplin has perfected his slapstick routine by the time this short was made. Previously he only made me smile, now he makes me laugh out loud.
No intertitles, and the title board itself is in French, but you don't really need those things to appreciate this kind of picture. Some racial humor here that wouldn't go over today (blackface, etc) but that was all commonplace when this was made.
The whole download is worth it just for the jazz score
